Michael Seal Conductor
Tasmin Little Violin
Elgar Violin Concerto in B minor Op. 61
Brahms Symphony no.1 in C minor Op. 68
Two giants of the classical repertoire make up this final concert of the season: Elgar’s deeply felt, introvert and thoughtful violin concerto, and the symphony that took 20 years to emerge from Brahms’ creative processes. ‘The tramp of the giant’ [Beethoven] had hampered Brahms, but having eventually completed his 1st symphony, the second arrived in the following year. Brahms unblocked?
